From archery to showmanship, local 4-H and FFA members competed at the Pueblo County fair last week, July 20th through 27th. Approximately 28 members of the Greenhorn Kickers 4-H Club and 4 youth from the Rye FFA Chapter exhibited their talents, projects and animals at the fair. The fair began with the popular shooting sports competition, then the general projects were judged early in the week. Animal shows were held throughout the week and culminated in the Round Robin Showmanship competition. This competition takes the top two showmen from seven species (dogs, horses, sheep, swine, market goat, dairy goat and beef cattle) from each of three age groups and has them compete against each other. The top five placings are announced just before the beginning of the Showcase Sale, held Saturday evening. Below are some of the results:
